Some first looks have appeared for Ben Stiller's upcoming Tropic Thunder and Kevin Smith's Zack & Miri Make a Porno. While both of these films may be straight forward comedies, they both have a touch of genre inside them. Thunder will spoof the war classic Apocalypse Now and prima dona actors under the direction of Ben Stiller while Porno takes on porn, financial uncertainty and general nerdy behavior that only Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen can bring to the table. USA Today and Entertainment Weekly featured the first looks to both films which you can see below.

Click on the photos to get transported to their articles at EW and USA Today.

Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Jack Black star in Tropic Thunder

Tropic Thunder Plot:
Ben Stiller says "Tropic Thunder" is a "a comedy about five actors who go on location and find themselves relying on their boot camp experiences when they get stuck in a real war-like situation." Black will play Jeff "Fats" Portnoy, an overweight gross-out comedian, who's forced to kick his drug addiction while filming on location in the jungle. Downey Jr. will play Kirk Lazarus, the greatest actor of his generation and a four-time Oscar winner. Baruchel will play Kevin Sandusky, an unknown actor on the set and Stiller plays Speedman.

Tropic Thunder will hit theaters August 15, 2008.



Porno Plot:
Zack and Miri are two lifelong friends who are deep in debt and enlist the help of their friends to make a porno movie for some quick cash. But as everybody starts "doing" everybody, Zack and Miri realize that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.

Zack & Miri Make a Porno is under TBA release status.

Damn good makeup job there.

Stiller's movie actually sounds like it has potential, his movies are off and on, I haven't seen Heartbreak Kid yet, any good? At least it sounds like a pretty original idea although I bet someone can find argument against me about that.

Galaxy Quest comes to mind if you're looking for comparisons. It's a pretty good cast they have for Tropic. I'll probably see it. I've always liked Robert Downey jr. in any comedy he's done. And he's apparently playing an balck man so even more reason to watch. Ben Stiller can be counted on to deliver the same performance he has for the last ten years.

Holy shit, you're not kidding! That really is him! That alone will be enough to get me in the seat...

I would've missed that if you guys didn't mention it. Does anyone know if he's supposed to be black or a white guy portraying a black man. Chocobar good call on Galaxy Quest, one of my favorites. Both of these films have my interest. I like Stiller's comedies, especially when directed at adults but you can't blame the guy for chasing the money in family comedies.

I never would have guessed that was him.

Tropic Thunder makes me think that maybe 3 amigos was an inspiration. Im there. I usually dig Stiller. Zoolander is one of my all time faves.

Wow...that is good make up. I should have read the EW article before I posted. RDJ 's character sounds hillarious.
